Runways 16R and 16L were the active runways; however, due to several circumstances (weight, thunderstorm approaching from the south, etc.) the pilots requested and were granted a departure to the north on 34L.

This airframe exemplifies the "If it Ain't Boeing I Ain't Going" slogan! Wonder how old this frame is...Great shot Gary and thanks for sharing. 5*+++
